CA – Roz Chast Speaks

0000-roz-chast

Cartoonist Roz Chast speaks on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM at UCLA.

Roz Chast has loved drawing cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. She attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in painting because it seemed more artistic. However, soon after graduating, she reverted to type and began drawing cartoons once again. Chast is now known as a brilliant interpreter of the everyday. Her cartoons depict neuroses, hilarity, angst and domesticity and are loaded with words, objects and patterns. More than 1,000 of them have been printed in The New Yorker since 1978.

In this performance, she will read from her first memoir which harnesses her signature wit as she recounts her experience caring for her aging parents. Spanning the last several years of their lives and told through four-color cartoons, family photos and documents, and a narrative as rife with laughs as it is with tears, Chast’s memoir is both comfort and comic relief for anyone experiencing the life-altering loss of elderly parents. The evening will showcase the full range of Chast’s talent as cartoonist and storyteller.
